There are plans afoot for an educational/outreach conference for West Michigan. Here is their call for organizers:
Call For Organizers: Transgender Education Collaboration of West Michigan (2011-2012)
A collaborative plan for educating West Michigan about transgender, gender variant, and intersex issues
Why?There is a need for education about Transgendered, gender variant, and intersex issues in West Michigan.
How? LGBT and educational related groups will be able to educate & advocate on transgender, gender variant, and intersex issues by creating a conference/awareness week with speakers, workshops, and other activities.
What Can You Do? Email M Kelley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved, would be interested in speaking, know organizations willing to join the collaboration, or want to contribute somehow to this happening. It is my hope that together we can begin to change West Michigan.
